Our Nation’s Chairs Are Protesting

I can’t stop the chairs.  Every time they think I am not looking they shudder with anger. Their legs are weak, and their backs are bent.  They were ready to support a woman who would have used chairs to quietly negotiate peace.  These chairs should be dancing.  They steady themselves as I rest my pantsuit-clad …

Lady Liberty – Tarnished by Prejudice and Fear

She holds a torch to welcome the tired, the sick, the hungry.  At least she did.  Now this shining beacon of hope is dulled by prejudice, fear, and greed.  She is tired of all the squabbling.  Yes, we need to do background checks, make sure those applying for admission to the finest country on earth have …

Bruce Springsteen puts life on the stage. Every song – is a story, a slice of life through which he draws pictures, and unites us. His tough times, togetherness, sad songs, and raucous ones create a picture of the economic and emotional landscape of America. His songs are his life, events he lived or observed. His …

Words fail to capture the Extraordinary spirit and leadership of Nelson Mandela.  He was a man unequaled in  every way.  His loss is the headline of every media outlet I touch this morning, and rightfully so.

Create Like A Wild Child

Creative Team Building
